    Always have a notebook handy and always write shit down because no matter how obvious you think it is you will not remember what you did weeks from now.

    I painted a Tau army in olive drab colours and learnt this lesson hard because oh boy do the three million variations of military green not look discernibly different when in the bottle.

    Having built and primed every miniature I own I've started basecoating things.

    This gave me the opportunity to try out that Vallejo burnt iron airpaint I picked up... wow is that a great color. It went on like silk straight from the bottle too.

    Color me impressed.

    I found out my local LGS can bring in any Vallejo product, he just doesn't stock them due to shelf space... I might be ordering more of their airpaints.

    If I use gloss nuln oil to wash the imperial knight and then do a matte varnish, is that going to entirely defeat the purpose of using the gloss wash?

    Edit: started the gloss nuln oil shading and it isn't really looking different yet. Gonna do two layers so maybe I'll notice something with the second but so far it is really underwhelming. The gold details are still really bright as well.

    Edit2: I primed the armor plates. Most of them on the sprue. First time doing that, what do I do when I cut them out? Trim the flash and paint over it with the base paint? I primed with the Fang rattle can and I have the fang in a pot.

    I've been basecoating things. I've started using GWs Averland Sunset primer as a step saver, then I give each model an all over wash of Nuln Oil, then apply a layer of Averland Sunset back over the flat surfaces, leaving the darker wash in the recesses. I'm trying to do all of that to all the models in my current list, so that I can get this boring step out of the way, then move on to finishing models.

    So far, I've done about 10 Intercessors, 6 Aggressors and 2 lieutenants. Tonight I plan on trying to get my captain and5 more intercessors done, and start on 5 Hellblasters.

    Decided to do some painting. Painting up the space marine heroes models as Space Wolves. Priming did not go as well as I had thought but whatever, I need practice.

    Painting pre build models is so rough. There are details being blocked by the gun and backpack that frustrate me. I've been watching Duncan paint to try and get an idea for what I'm doing here and I wish he would do a more detailed video on painting behind the gun and around the backpacks.

    Prime candidates for being left off. For push fit parts you can shorten the peg and it can be attached and removed much easier. Useful if you want to play with them in the meantime

    This is just kind of miserable. I have a huge army for Space Wolves and it is all put together and it is going to be a pain to paint all these.

    I don't like missing details but I'm also not painting for a competition so it should be fine. I just keep thinking about it.

    I have not. How would I do that?

    For air paints do I still need to water them down if I'm brush painting? I need to use averland sunset but I apparently only have an airbrush version.

    Edit: setup a wet pallet with a paper towel and parchment baking paper. Do I need to water the paints down with this or is the moisture in there already supposed to take care of that for me?

    The wet pallet only keeps the paint from drying out, it doea nothing to thin them.

    My experience dictates otherwise. I'm not saying it does the whole job, but you definitely need less thinner on a wet palette.
    But then again I have been using a wet palette exclusively for many years now.

    My method for painting behind guns and backpacks on models that are already assembled and primed follows thusly:
    1. Don't.

    If you can't see it to paint it, nobody is going to be able to see it either. I used to waste so much time painting chest eagles/chaos stars/skulls that go behind guns, doing all of the shading and highlighting and making them look god damn amazing, only to have them covered up and never to be seen again. Seriously, worrying about those parts is just wasting time.

    I generally would just prime the model and pack separately, attach the backpack and then before painting the model do a liberal addition of washes around the joint to darken the whole thing then ignore afterwards

    I used to be the same way and honestly, it was real hard not to do it at first. Then I realized I was painting models incredibly slowly and wasting a bunch of time on those spots when a bast coat and wash provided enough color and depth that it didn't matter to me or anyone I was playing with or showing off models to.

    I mean, if you feel the urge to do it, go nuts. But if you're agonizing over how to paint parts of models that are covered up and it's frustrating you to do it, just try a couple without painting deep behind things and see how it makes you feel.

    That is what I'm going to try. I have 8 models from the space marine heroes stuff that I'm painting. Gonna see if I can ignore my compulsiveness and just feel alright with them being done after I finish.

    Tried the wet pallet, every time I tried to water down the paint even with just a tiny amount it basically turned into an ink. It was smooth enough to get good coverage without adding more water. I also did shade in the details and cleaned up with dry brushing russ grey to cover up the screw ups and they are coming along nicely. Just need to figure out which great company I want them to be from, gonna be using them for kill team mostly.

    I might finish doing the second layer of gloss nuln oil on my knight and two warglaives first.

    I also finally tested the tamiya paint to see what shade of blue I like more for my grey knight kill team. The blue looks really good on vallejo aluminum and vallejo gun metal grey. I'd show a picture but it doesn't look right.

    Been doing a lot of painting stuff in spurts and trying to take advantage of the times I actually feel like doing something so everything has been sporadic.

    I find tamiya clear paints gets a really good candy style color or the paint that is used in this video.



    Speaking or candy color schemes, I want to do my grey knight kill team in a blue but I can't which to use.

    Both had a prime of vallejo surface prie gloss black.

    I then used vallejo gun metal grey and tamiya clear coat blue. This one came out as a more dark teal that reminds me of alpha legion.

    This one used vallejo aluminum and tamiya clear. This has a pretty nice bright blue color.

    Work in progress testing the scheme on cloth, had to use brush on primer and it was streaky, causing the cloth to be streaky. Not sure I hate it, really. Gotta wash/highlight the armor and bone, and paint the bases up.

    The problem I have is with the current ones it's hard to not give them the weapon since it's part of their body/arm But I would just paint them up knowing they would never be seen it was part of the body

    All the paints I used on the spoon are acrylic. I used an airbrush for them but they are also brush friendly.

    The paint used in the YouTube video I'm not sure about but I think is a lacquer.

    Edit: I can do up two red spoons if you want examples of red as well.

    Not sure where to go with them next. Either a wash of nuln oil or agrax or gloss varnish and pin wash them. I am also probably gonna paint the guns leadbelcher and do the normal thing. Probably gonna leave the blades the blue color and try to add to it to see if I can do something cool but I honestly have no idea where to go for that. Do some silver and gold details where it makes sense. I don't think I lost any detail on them but I still feel like I went way too heavy with the paint.

    Maybe I will like them better after some of that.

    I also did a test of tamiya clear red and orange.

    I did all of them will vallejo surface primer gloss black.

    This one is vallejo aluminum and then tamiya clear red.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    That is my plan. I actually like House Hawkshroud the best, but I'm beginning to think I am hung up on yellow. So I want something different.

    My local gaming group is quite into Wild West Exodus, and today I pulled the trigger on some models of my own. I got the Tribal Retribution starter, a box of plains hunters and fighters, and an extra Face (Irontooth.)

    Time to learn to paint skin tones and faces.

    I'm having a lot of trouble feeling good about these Space Wolves so far. I know I'm not really even close to being done but they feel off. I'm pretty much following the battle ready Space Wolves video from warhammer tv.

    Trying some sub assembly with a Space Wolves model that I think looks cool.

    Got the armor plates for my imperial knight primed and the shoulder pads are nearly done. Trying to see if I can get a friend to paint the Ironwolves great company symbol on the left shoulder.
